by the camera people and they did a lovely job on that. hello, america. all week we've been wondering which president would show up for the "state of the union" address. would it be the hey, people aren't digging my agenda, triangulate move to center, obama. or would it be the arrogant do-it-my-way progressive obama? i don't think we saw either of the guys show up last night. arrogant progressive, at least to me doesn't even begin to describe what i saw last night. it was more like watching, i don't know, fabio stare at himself and then that randy macho man savage part of obama educate america on how great he is. you know what i mean? one conclusion i draw from last night is the president thinks we're all stupid. america sent a clear message to washington in the recent months. his response wasn't a message of slowing down or cutting back, or even listening or responding to peech ing ting to. with a we got is keep your mouth shut and fall in line or i'll give you another speech because you were so stupid you didn't understand the last one. my plans are really great. one of the teams last nig
-- we begin this week, i should say, with america's middle class. as you likely know, ground zero for the failing policies of recent american politics. we're, of course, talking about the millions struggling to make ends meet, while paying the price for so many of america's outdated systems. whether that's two wars with no clear exit strategy. you know the narrative. funding a financial structure that takes money from the middle class as opposed to lending it to them. or broken health care system. not to mention a massive, inefficient, opaque government that continues to run record deficits and be dominated by special interests in a culture of cultural expediency. those middle-class families are the ones seeing layoffs at the astounding pace we have reported over and over again on this show and so many other places. they're also the people who are either losing their homes or they're stuck in those homes because the value of their mortgage is so much more than the actual value of the property at this point. compare a family of four in 2007 and compare that same family in 1971. whe
are against, but what you are for. the brilliance of your contract with america back in 1994 is that you had the presence of mind to lay out for the american people, whether they agreed or disagreed, you laid out an agenda of 10 things that you and your party would do if america gave you the chance to run the house. you were for something, as opposed to simply being against something. where is that in the part of your party right now? >> id is not covered as much because of the nature of the news media and because republicans do not push it hard enough. john boehner's plan was pretty good, they had a pretty good health plan that was modest within the congressional budget office, but to get anything covered like that, you have got to be maniacal in talking about it until all of your friends thk that you are crazy and the average person is just beginning to hear you. republicans do not quite have the discipline and focus to say on these topics the way that they should. another point on which i agree with you entirely, i have an article coming out next month where i outline a new approach to th

"washington journal" is next. . . . the president's efforts to give the economy on track. that is this morning from "the washington post." the report breaking this morning about a plane crashed in the route, "the new york times" online have the story about the airplane crashing near beirut in stormy weather. officials said that 82 passengers and eight crew members were on board. we will update the information as we get it. ruth, democratic line. caller: i am not quite sure if we ever did what we were promising. to try and help people who were in trouble with their mortgages. i think that we took the wrong approach to begin with. so many people that were out of their homes. the fact ripples through the economy. -- the of fact ripples through the economy. let's help -- bethe effedctct te riffles through the economy. if the loan was renegotiated to what it was really worth, they can afford it, but the communication that happening. ho

care in america is one of the greatest threats to future of our economy. not just as a nation but as businesses and families. if we ignore this and walk away from it for whatever reason, we are going to face a crisis much much worse in the near future. the president understands that. we would not even be in this position of taking this seriously if he hadn't shown the courage to lead us into this debate. >> schieffer: let me ask you about ben bernanke. do you have the votes to get him confirmed, senator? i know you're one of the vote counters. >> well, i'm going to vote for chairman bernanke. i have some misgivings about fed policy and economic policy. but i really do have to say this man guided us through the worst economic crisis this nation has seen since the great depression. we are in much better shape today because of his guidance and leadership. i still have unanswered questions and many colleagues do. we will need republican support to make certain that we pass the clothe you're vote which is a 60-vote requirement when it's taken up this next week. i think that we're g
you. >> glor: still ahead on tonight's cbs evening news, where america stands-- how close are we to predicting earthquakes in time? >> glor: following the horrendous earthquake in haiti, a new cbs news poll finds just 34% of americans believe the u.s. is prepared for a major earthquake here. 59% believe it is not. many feel that underscores the need for a system of accurate and timely prediction. our science and technology correspondent daniel sieberg lays out the challenge as cbs reports "where america stands." >> reporter: in the past 20 years, there have been 26 earthquakes measuring 6.5 or higher in places like san francisco and northridge, california. they turn high rises into rubble. they happen without warning. explain our report card shows america gets mixed grades when it comes to preparing for and predicting earthquakes. overall researchers tell us america gets a b-plus for knowing what causes earthquakes but a c-plus when it comes to securing infrastructure. short-term predictions are simply not possible yet and earthquakes could happen in places you wouldn't expect,

and is far less so now, as there are so many people in the muslim world that are mad at america. very few muslims hate americans for being americans. in terms of airports, the watch word is not a silver bullet. if anything, this gentleman in detroit was a rank amateur. had he been a professional, it would not have the nabobs of job. for americans to somehow think that we have a great system to protect them, i think that is wrong. i think sometimes i wonder why we spend so much attention on the aircraft and system when we have 3000 or 4,000 miles of open sea borders. host: going back to your comment from a moment ago about the u.s. killing al qaeda one of the time, what should we do, does that mean a bigger military presence in places like yemen? guest: we are at the drawing board. we have not progressed since 9/11. we are fighting an enemy that basically does not exist. the american people, for the last four presidents, continued to tell americans that we are fighting an enemy that is motivated by hatred for freedom and our liberties. women in the workplace. liquor after the work day. the

line on bank of america, although the number came in a little bit below expectations, 60 cent, the credit trends are clearly improving a little bit. that's what's important here. we also of course had wells fargo. their numbers beat expectations but still got a lot of real estate problems out there from the old wachovia deals. how about the hmos here, yes, certainly any kind of confusion on the health care reform issue probably would benefit hmos, but in the general market, weakness after a couple of nice moves to the upside, they ended up close to the lows for the day. maria, back to you. >> bob, thanks very much. meanwhile, technology took a beating today despite ibm's strong earnings report. scott wapner manning the nymex for us. ibm set the tone, didn't it, scott. >> reporter: absolutely, maria. selling on the news is what we're seeing again. take a look at intel, for example, that stock had much better than expected earnings. the stock sold on the news. ibm, pretty good earnings as well. stock sold on the news. take a look at what the nasdaq's performance was today in tho

bernanke and the chairman of the federal reserve, i think we'd be looking at a very different america today. now he was not my choice to become the chairman of the federal reserve. the previous administration nominated ben bernanke. i voted for him. and then when i became chairman of the banking committee in january of 2007, for the first time, i went through a very frustrating year on that committee. on february 7 of 2007, i had my first hearings on the issue of the mortgage crisis in the country. and we had 12 such hearings on that committee over the remaining months. almost one every month on this issue. yet, i could not get the chairman of the federal reserve to pay as much attention as i thought he should have. beginning in the latter part of 2007, and going forward, his leadership in my view was absolutely critical to avoiding the kind of problems this country faced. so, mr. president, i'll speak for a few more minutes later in this tee baivment but i think we would make a great error, indeed, if we were to reject this nomination. we'd not terminate this filibuster, vote up and down o
